One thing I was wondering about it is I always viewed the bulgarian training (I am no expert) as close to what Josh Thrush posted for Reply #15 on: April 21, 2005, 02:32:48 AM. I am interested to know how this program treated lifters and the success the may or may not have had. I know Karoliina tried the bulgarian approach and found it was detrimental to thier lifting. But was that the same as what John did? Because to me the bulgarian approach more mimiced reaching the max for the day and then adjusting from there. So a day you are dead you only hit a weight that is equivalent to 90% of your max you are not hitting 100%. Then the expertise of the coach comes in to say ok stop that is good for the day or lets drop it 2.5-7 kilos (or whatever) and lift at that intensity, or if you hit 100% easily lets try to hit 2.5+ kilos. So in theory there will be days where the athlete is fatigued from a pervious hard workout but they lift less accordingly but the days they are killing thier weights they have the freedom to reach for the sky. To me it seemed more like Karoliina tried to hit 100% of thier max each day which would I think would wear out an athlete, as opposed to a relative max for the day.
